Chicago is known for its swanky restaurants and bars. We recently discovered the Darling which just opened a few weeks ago. Located at 905 W. Randolph in the west loop, this lounge has an interior like no other. Hang out, listen to music and sip craft cocktails in their “library.” The Darling is open from 4pm to 2am daily.
A new hidden gem in the West Loop. Blind Barber is a shave and haircut shop that opens to a 70's themed bar behind it. It's a hybrid barber/cocktail lounge that first debuted in New York in 2010 and opened in LA 2012. Customers can grab a haircut and a shave while holding a cocktail! While the New York location features pizza, Chicago offers a variety of grilled cheese options including flavors like smoked gouda, pepperjack, habanero and jalapeño. You'll find a cool retro vibe at the bar, a diverse crowd and great music. Blind Barber is located at 948 W. Fulton Market and open till midnight Sunday and Monday and 2am the rest of the week. https://blindbarber.com
